On our September jaunt, we are travelling down to Lefkada from Igoumenitsa by bus. We want to get from Lefkada to Meganisi so could anyone tell me where the ferry goes from and if there are any reasonable places to stay around there? What "must sees" are there on Lefkada and what is the public transport like?
 
We are hoping to get to Kefalonia by ferry and think that there is one from Vasiliki. Does the ferry go direct to Kefalonia or would we have to travel via Ithaki?
 
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

The ferry to Meganissi from Lefkas leaves from Nidri...think there is one every couple of hours.

Didn't stay on Lefkas any longer than the time waiting for the ferry...but what we did see we liked.

I would imagine the bus might go the whole way from Lefkas Town to Meganisi (and beyond?) we stayed in Spartahori the first ferry stop from Nidri, and the bus was on the ferry and drove off there to Vathi. The ferry went on to Vathi from Spartahori. I don't know if Vathi was the end of the line, I have a feeling it went on somewhere else before returning to Nidri.
As we were sailing can't say about accommodation.

Hiya Josefina,
 
Thanks for the information. Where did you get off the ferry? Can you recommend any accomodation or tavernas that we could use whilst we are there?
 
best wishes

Hiya Bob,
 
Thanks for coming back to me. I hadn't realised that the bus went on the ferry too! I'll need a closer look at where that ferry might go.
 
best wishes

Hi Terry,

Never saw a bus on the ferry over to Meganissi. We stayed at "Paradise Beach Apartments" in Katomeri. The Ferry we caught 5pm on a Sunday stopped at Spatochori only, then returned to Nidri (this was back in 2011 could of changed again.) However some for example, the early afternoon ferry stops at Vathy and Spatochori before returning to Nidri. As far as I know its just a circular ferry. Lefkas (Nidri port) to Meganissi (Spatochori, and Vathy).

I don't think the "Paradise Apartments are open any longer. In Vathy are  the Rose Garden Apartments. Can't think of any others.

Meganissi Hotel is up in the village of Katomeri..Nice place...

Meganissi is a very quiet Island not much going on at all. We loved it.

If you need any more info PM me.

Josie
